Remembering Maya Angelou

so sad to hear the news about Maya Angelou today. i learned so much from reading her entire collection of (7? 8?) memoirs one autumn, about alternate perspectives and the value of all our stories. i was so proud to learn that an article i wrote that casually mentioned her work in passing that was hit by trolls inspired a lively two-day class discussion about her work and mine in which high schoolers who usually never speak spoke up. a lot. from 2010. #weneeddiversebooks
